"Today makes it three years. It's certainly not any easier, nor will it ever be. I find myself thinking of you and speaking of you everyday. I only wish you could be here to try my cooking, I think I'd make you proud. You'd love my house, especially how close it is to the water. I know you would be up here fishing and canoeing with us if you were here. While I'm sad you're no longer with us, I know you're watching over each and everyone of us. Love you Dad."
